How to make a doughnut Pikachu:

What you’ll need:

  • Unglazed donuts
  • Icing sugar
  • Yellow food colouring
  • Black decorating gel
  • Red decorating gel
  • Banana lollies

STEP 1: To make the icing, carefully add some yellow food colouring and water to the icing sugar. Then dip in your unglazed doughnut to ice the top surface. 

STEP 2: Cut the banana lollies in half and poke them into the doughnut to make ears. Using a toothpick to secure the bananas can help.    

STEP 3: Use the red and black decorating gels to draw Pikachu’s face including its signature rosy, red cheeks! 

Get inspired!
